Dr. McCoy Would Be Pleased

This thing sounds hella-cool . . . a golf-ball-sized ultrasound device with a handle that would be used to scan for internal injuries and, with a few settings adjustments, to patch them via precise and localized ultrasonic heating of the blood into a seal.

Quite a bit different from what we're used to, as so wonderfully explained circa 2:47 in this gratuitous YouTube clip posting.

"Oh, I'd give a lot to see the hospital. Probably needles . . . sutures . . . oh the pain . . . they had to cut and sew people like garments!"

  1. If it can be used on cancer cells, as the article suggests, it might be a better way than lipo to help get rid of a lot of the fat many in this country have to help with the health problems from that. But, I wonder about tightening up the skin, if it'd do it on its own, like when someone looses weight with diet an exercise.

    That last 5% mentioned that couldn't be solved by the beam must be pretty substantial then, if they're fixing 95% of them.

  2. I'm sorry to post this here, but I tried to leave feedback for the website, but when I click the "send" button it gives me a message saying I don't have permission to be there as well as a 404 error(webpage not found)

  3. I'm more interested in the implications of utilizing this technology with micro surgery... Could you imagine how little we would have to do invasive procedures for a lot of our more common problem?. Indeed, no doubt about it, McCoy would be pleased.
